The Cauvery delta, located at the mouth of the 80,000 sq. km Cauvery river basin, lies at the epicentre of a 150 year long inter-state dispute between the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Today, the Cauvery delta is under increasing human and natural pressure. Both global and local change drivers with intensifying human activity, increasing climatic extremes, decreasing river flows from upstream, declining groundwater levels and sea-level rise, have put the delta and the population it supports at increasing risk. If the tanks could be revived to boost recharge, then current declining trends in groundwater could be reversed. And unlike other parts of semi-arid India, the delta region, with an average annual rainfall of 1250 mm, does regularly experience floods during the North-East monsoon, which can be harvested and used.
